A very generous extra in a trade - excited to dive into this one.
Pours very dark for a Baltic porter, though from CCB I am not surprised. Creamy tight-bubble head for a barrel aged beer - light beige.
Incredibly rich and well balanced aroma of sweet bourbon and oak flavors - pronounced vanilla, light caramel and toffee, cocoa powder, wet oak, slight bourbon and dark fruits. As it warms some sweet pipe tobacco and fresh berry notes come to the fore.
Incredibly smooth mouthfeel and light sweet finish.
Floored by this one - would love to do it side-by-side with BA Framinghammer. Hope they brew it again!

750 received in trade a while back.. Shared tonight with the good fellas.. Pours a fairly thick dark brown, dark brown head rises up and dies back pretty quickly.. nose shows thick vanilla and barrel presence. Pretty odd spicy note makes me think of cinnamon that I know isn't really there.. Instead just a big clean dark malt bomb.. bourbon gets a little heavy as it warms up.
